however, if you look at this, by the time reagan started to run for re-election, the company was starting to grow the year before the election. look at this. 9.1, 9.3, 8.1% growth, 8% growth, 7.1. a tough recession but as ronald reagan geared up to run the election over here, the economy was booming. president obama cannot be so confident. the only comparison that we have so far, 1.9% so far this year and reagan had -- will the president get growth anywhere like this. there's not an economist that thinks the economy will bounce back like that as the president runs for re-election. one last way to look at it, october, a way out, january the year before the election, president obama actually in slightly better shape than president reagan but because of the economy, president reagan ended up in election day, 2010, that is the key question.
